On XML and Java

As part of an
assignment
for a course at Sussex University I have to create a Servlet to run a small application, one to deal with a wedding list. It involves quite a few technologies, including XML, javascript, CSS and JAVA.So far I am not specially happy with the course as I haven’t enjoyed it as much as I thought initially.

I think it is because there are so many technologies considered in such a short period of time, but I think that Java itself made me feel very uncomfortable from the very beginning (As an example, I found the Java DOM API to be quite awkward to use). Anyway.

But I must admit that I have learned some topics I was not proficient in, such as javascript, css and XML.

Probably I would feel much better doing these things in a scripting language such as python or ruby, or even perl…

So far I am not specially happy with the course as I haven’t enjoyed it as much as I thought initially.
